Quote from Ssag: "Passing infomation like dancingbears does about shows or downloads is one thing and theres nothing wrong with that but to promote it as being better is obnoxious and inappropiate on Archives. No reason to say the "people are better" over there then here. It's offensive to the people who don't go there or post there."


Here's the only thing I will say on this matter....
Ssag, once again you are very new to the archives. I outright admit that the only reason I ever showed up here at all, was because Deadhook was something very, very special for me. It brought me joy. I wanted to share with other deadheads what I had found. There are a lot of resources on deadhook that are just not available here on LMA. I never expected anyone to ever leave LMA, and was not looking to hijack anyone, but to have the option of another place too. If you go read all my posts and threads when I first got here, I took a lot of shit for it.

And then I got to know everyone, and they got to know me. And I stayed because a lot of people have asked me to. I am sorry if you don't like the things I say, or how they come out. I for one have never said anything on this board that I am ashamed of, or regret saying. I am not 'obnoxious', and I have been honest and open always. If you don't like what I have to say, please don't read it. Thank you.

DancinBears once again proving to be a shit magnet. What IS up with that? Do folks just go blind or throw their capacity to understand out the window when she puts up a post? Are her posts cryptical, impossible to decipher?

Usually capable of neatly summarizing a situation with near neutral perspective, I am at a loss here.

I will say this though. Providing tongue in cheek humor before folks have gained a general understanding of your personality is treading on thin ice around here. You will undoubtably be misunderstood and by the time you attempt to rectify the situation, it's normally too late.

Then comes the obligatory round of apologies from all that participated in the misdirected flaming, followed shortly by an emergency grok, to restore order to the board. The following day, word comes from across the pond that we've unleashed the hounds again, and as a group we in general are not nice people. The situation is rehashed and somebody feeling jilted, quits.

This phenomemon is followed by another rush of apologies, this time where they "really mean it." Even some begging to stay posts have been seen. "We're really not that bad a group of assholes." Then for the next couple of days a raft of "what this board means to me" posts. Replies pour in, "I love you man."

The "I love you's" are followed by a cleverly disguised and off color homophobe joke posted by Direwolf, who is then forced to defend himself until the cows come home. During this episode, an interloper calls into question the exact size and location of said Dire's kahunas, and someone is forced to shut the little weasel down.

Like a bouncer in the middle of a marital fistfight, the referee gets slammed to the ground and crushed in the race for general seating to view the Dire draw blood on the hapless interloper. Unlike National Geographic the baby impala gets torn limb from limb, and even the Hyenas are scared to approach Dire until he spends the following day apologizing for his carnivorous ways.

Then comes the best yet.








What's your favorite Dark Star?

Hello, Earl. Are you referring to me here? Can't think when I've ever directly or by implication said that the group were not nice people.

Cruel joke--sorry, too late for you to endure it. I have no idea what he meant, and really did just jump on the joke since you, seriously, are the only one I can trust not to offend...hmmm, screwed that up now I suppose.

Get to bed.

Well, if I didn't implicate most every regular poster in some form or another you might feel left out. I just couldn't find a way to be inclusive without taking into account the time difference. Fuck, it's hard to write original and semi-fictional posts without somebody wanting to take credit for something. I quit. I'm leaving. And no amount of sucking up and telling me how god damn meaningful I am to this board is going to stop me. I swear. Honest, here I go. I'm going now, really, I quit. Sorry if I offended anybody, but you've changed and I can't handle it. So see ya later, I'm outta here, don't make me come back. It's really really true this time. Swear to God, I mean it.

Earl, this one is simply too good to not bear repeating:

"Like a bouncer in the middle of a marital fistfight, the referee gets slammed to the ground and crushed in the race for general seating to view the Dire draw blood on the hapless interloper. Unlike National Geographic the baby impala gets torn limb from limb, and even the Hyenas are scared to approach Dire until he spends the following day apologizing for his carnivorous ways."

No offense to Dire or the impalas, but that is beautiful...

No actually it was saggyballs but that was a while ago......this is a new one. Sorry Im not cool anymore man..... I think I let the better part of me run outta my head with all this nonsense.

Dancingbears Gheez I guess I have to think better before I write which is making this very hard because I am a dumbass. I was not saying anything bad to you and I thought I wrote that. Some others have and they claim to be lurkers have come on here and said its cooler over there. I just think its lame. Nevermind I see this is getting no where and I have become the problem.

man, i have been the problem more than the solution more times than i can count on this forum (just ask any of the regulars here).

we just all have to chill on the negativity and the personal attack - ive been better recently, but not perfect and i can never count myself out from slipping again in the future.

orchidoctor doesn't like the banter and the personal crap that goes on between all of us, that is too bad, but is probably gonna continue and he is probably gonna leave. bye bye. it's just the vitriol that has to stop. that is all.

I think what Jody means by that is, while you have been "damn good lately"... I may have rubbed off on you a little bit with that.

You have rubbed off on me too. :) Just the opposite way.
and considering what Earl said at the beginning of his post, (which I've been feeling myself), it's a good thing!!

This is an invitation
Across the nation
A chance for the folks to meet
There'll be laughin' and singin' and music swingin'
And Dancin' in the streets

Dancin'

Come on man I am not offended. For fucks sake I am feeling mental around here. This is bizzare, no matter what someone or I say there is someone there to noticed something and make comment or interpert it differantly then intended. Holy mackerel.... I deal with some strange stuff out to sea dealing with differant personalities all the time and I am not saying this is there but it getting to the point. Alright now I am not offended nor do I think I am 100% wrong but for christ sake. This shit didnt start with me but I have perpetuated it thats for sure. Frinking mistake on my part, I guess I have a fasination with kicking dead dogs. Half of the people slamming me now I stuck up for......I have no issue with anyone on here personally. I didnt like something and spoke up. Was it mean hearted.....I guess it was, sorry to have spoken up the wrong way........Fuck I need a bong hit right now.

*NOTE* by the Society for a Better Mental Heath people: no feelings were hurt while reading this post. It is what it was.

"no matter what someone or I say there is someone there to noticed something and make comment or interpert it differantly then intended." But isn't that exactly what you did in your attacks? See, we all misinterpret things. A given poster may have the best of intentions but doesn't express it in the right way; or he may realize that what was written didn't sit well. That's why we have apologies! (And let me apologize in advance for anything I might need to apologize for now or then or later or whenever)
